Discussion Paper


WORKFORCE WELL-BEING AND ENGAGEMENT

The paper was presented by DCC Dyson to make SCT aware of a  developing,  joined up and evidence-based approach to staff well-being and engagement, that involves BCD, HR, Media and Marketing, the Police Authority and others within SYP working together to provide information for the force relating to staff perceptions about the organisation,  levels of engagement and motivation, and beliefs.

It is also to assure SCT that the individual pieces of work are complementary and co-ordinated and to ensure SCT are aware of the proposed involvement of third party organisations and sighted on the academic use of information and development of a commercial diagnostic product.


The paper put forward the recommendation:

1. SCT in principle support the collaboration with research partners to develop our understanding of factors that engage and motivate our people, particularly during organisational change:

a)  Working with the University of Sheffield Institute of Work Psychology (IWP)

b) Working with organisational change consultants ‘Ideasmiths’.


RESOLVED - Paper was agreed.

Audit Reports


INTERNAL AUDIT REPORT
Noted.

CARRY FORWARDS
SCT considered the proposed use of carry forwards submitted by districts and departments.  The DFA proposed that all bids connected to staffing issues should be paid for from this year's revenue budgets as most districts and departments are under spending.  Other bids should be financed from the income the force receives from policing the Olympics.  This was accepted but requires Police Authority approval.


Papers to Review
None

NOTIFICATION TO THE FORCE
None.

ANY OTHER BUSINESS
None.
